  • Stand up

Stand up when you don’t need to use the keyboard, such as reading a document/email or making a phone call.

  • Adjustment

Check if your desk or computer needs adjustment. Unreasonable desk setup has made many people suffer from back pain.

  • Have a walk

If you need to have a short conversation/meeting with your colleges, walk and talk to them rather than calling them.

  • Keep moving

Avoid sitting after lunch. This can reduce the risk of elevated blood sugar and obesity.

  • Try chair yoga

There are many free video tutorials online, and you generally only need to spend a few minutes to complete.

Such as small sports balls and barbells.

  • Go out of the office
